Reaching our first fundraising goal!

See Orphanet link to research project

On August 5th, Karen sent us a message in a post explaining the need to fundraise to supplement the UK's Medical Research Council (MRC) grant for TMAU therapeutic research through Trinzyme. At the time, we had raised £250, and set our goal to raising at least £1,000 before Christmas 2013 to show MRC that we are a united, proactive international community committed to finding a cure.

I am happy to say that as of this morning, August 19th, we have raised,

£694.65GBP = $1,086.92/USD
(at today's rate of exchange)!

At this rate, we will reach our goal for December ahead of time. I am proud of our community for coming forward with enthusiasm to pursue this research, so that sufferers will have a treatment that will effectively control odor symptoms for sufferers. Please keep your donations coming. The more we are able to raise, the less funding we will need from investors who will then be looking to make a profit off our community. Let's keep the cost of this therapeutic down, so that all sufferers around the world and all future generations can have access to it.


Best Wishes, Maria and Karen

I need to call HSBC, the bank in the UK where MEBO has its business accounts, to find out which would be the best way to collect donations and grants that would be deposited directly to an account specifically established for the MRC grant funded Trinzyme TMAU Therapeutic Research Project.

MEBO has three deposit bank accounts with HSBC, one for British Pound Sterling (GBP), another for Euros (EUR), and another for U.S. Dollars (USD) currencies. Since donations will be made from different countries in the world, I would like to discuss with the bank to see if there is a way it can be directly deposited into these accounts, while at the same time, protecting MEBO from scammers who may end up doing unauthorized business under MEBO’s identity.

I believe that banks have programs for this, but I also suspect that they are costly. I really wouldn’t want the funds donated to go towards costly administrative expenses as these if at all possible. There probably will be a cost, but I want to try to find the lowest cost and most effective method. I hesitate to jump into any program for this without guidance from professionals that are experts in the British banking and legal system.

Another idea is to establish a Trust specifically for Trinzyme taking advantage of these multicurrency MEBO Business Bank accounts to minimize currency exchange fees wherever possible.

I believe that we desperately need PRO-BONO legal services to assist us in this endeavor. Would anyone know of a solicitor in England who would like to assist us with this? It would be greatly appreciated.

Meanwhile, I will contact HSBC to discuss this further with them.
